WORKS & PROCESS at the Guggenheim Museum in NYC on Sunday, November 24 and Monday, November 25 at 7:30pm.

Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, presents the Merce Cunningham Centennial Celebration 

Dylan Crossman, a former member of Merce Cunningham Dance Company, curates a program celebrating the 100th birthday of modern dance legend Merce Cunningham. The program opens with Cunningham Centennial Solos: Works & Process at the Guggenheim, a unique arrangement of solos drawn from the recent Merce Cunningham Trust production Night of 100 Solos: A Centennial Event. The arrangement – made especially for the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed theater at the Guggenheim, by Dylan Crossman with Andrea Weber and performed by members of the Los Angeles and New York casts of
Night of 100 Solos – is set to music by John King and features costumes by Reid Bartelme and Harriet Jung. Next, Crossman and fellow former company member Jamie Scott perform duets spanning several decades of Cunningham’s work, with live music by Jesse Stiles and Pauline H. Kim. Weber moderates a discussion with former Cunningham dancers Kimberly Bartosik; Gus Solomons, Jr.; Dylan Crossman; and Jamie Scott.

Works & Process at the Guggenheim

Described by The New York Times as “an exceptional opportunity to understand something of the creative process,” for 35 years, New Yorkers have been able to see, hear, and meet the most acclaimed artists in the world, in an intimate setting unlike any other. Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, has championed new works and offered audiences unprecedented access to generations of leading creators and performers. Most performances take place in the Guggenheim’s intimate Frank Lloyd Wright-designed 273-seat Peter B. Lewis Theater. In 2017, Works & Process established a new residency and commissioning program, inviting artists to create new works, made in and for the iconic Guggenheim rotunda. worksandprocess.org.
